I'm sure. I've had it since it was new, having initially leased it in November of 2000. I think they did use different tail lights for the 2dr/4dr models. I actually liked the look of the 4dr tail lights better and considered switching them out. Maybe I need to look into that now that they should be easier to find in the yards...


01 Convertible; Electric Fan; 3" Up Your Kia lift spacers; Tj 104's; 31x10.5x15's on Centerlines; Rear LSD.
GONE, all I have left are a few spare parts and the wheels.

im going with the 3" lift just picked up the springs tonight. Buddy that i got the springs from showed me he had a set of 2" spacers, he is gonna let me know after the weekend if i can get them from him as his dad might need them. The springs are out of a 97 tj hardtop. Getting closer to get ready to install lol.

If what your saying is true, your possibly going to be nose high! The 2" spacer is a 4" lift and the 1.5" is a 3" lift!

2" spacer & tj106 spring = 4" of lift, 1.5" spacer & tj104 spring = 3" lift. Just to save you same headaches <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

So the 1.5 spacers will give the 3" lift...Now for the rear springs i picked up there was no tags on them but they were out of a 97 tj hardtop 4 cyl...hope they are the 104s. I Thought the first thread here said the 2 inch spacers gave the three inch lift....

Ya, I posted a while ago that info needed to be changed so nobody would get confused. Only the orig poster or Moderator can change it. Might want to check with Everet to see if he can help identify your springs. Or, since the rears are so easy you could just put them in and see how much lift you have and go from there.
